Day 4 Ride - Another Long but Good Day to Haydock

Day 4 Ride - 106 miles from Ludlow to Haydock.

Here's a photo from the start of the day. Some people are riding recumbent bikes. I wonder how they do in the hills.

Here's a report from Brian that I got in a text at 2:24 p.m. our time:

"Made it fine today. VERY COLD. 18 mph cross/headwind... Tire blew at one point. Very hard to keep warm and it rained occasionally too. Long day but good day. Have met some very nice people... Tomorrow is a hard day. We climb a 1.1 km mountain."

I asked about the state of his rear end and he said it is doing pretty well! That's very good.

If you are wondering what Brian is referring to about the mountain tomorrow, check out this profile of tomorrow's ride. 1.1 km is 3,609 feet in our units.

Yikes! He needs to pace himself.

    Listen to Joo. She knows what she is talking about. Pace yourself. You can do it. You've been training in the "hills" of Florida! Your are ready.
